Back in 2018, I was diagnosed with a painful, long-lasting arthritis in my hip. I was on crutches for a year and a half, being able to do nothing, but eat. Arthritis disrupted my sleep, my education and most of all, my family. I was getting more and more depressed with no sign of a cure, and the apparent knowledge that it "was all in my head" was the most frustrating part. Every bump in the road was painful, both physically and mentally.
